Zacuto recently released the Zgrip iPhone Jr. at $69. With the Zgrip iPhone Jr., you have many of the same features of its big brother, Zgrip iPhone Pro, minus the adjustability.

The handgrip has a ¼ 20″ thread on the bottom so you can mount it to a tripod. It also has a ¼ 20″ thread on the top for mounting accessories such as a light. The Zgrip iPhone Jr. is developed by Zacuto the leading indie camera accessories maker in the professional market.

    This is not a viral marketing scheme and don’t be ashamed. We make products that help people make great videos.

    At first I thought like you, who or why would want to make a video using an iPhone. If I had one of these iPhones when I was a kid I would have been in heaven and would have been making all kinds of films “and learning filmmaking and framing, screen direction, editing and more”.

    Just watch what these guys did with there iPhone, it’s astounding:
    And here is what they went through to make that video:
    Sure seems like a Zgrip iPhone would have made that easier.

  15. endeavour_uk on July 6th, 2009 2:12 pm

    Having watched a lot of your promos since buying my 5D Mk2, I did feel you had a little less conviction than usual ;-) However, when you see work like the one you linked, you can really see the potential.

    Not sure I can justify one yet as I am hoping to get a Rapid Fire kit but I have never found a comfy way to hold an iPhone for a photo and its even harder for video. My ideal iPhone accessory would be some form of strange genetic experiment involving a Zgrip, Juicepack and Litepanel. Does Jens have any mad scientists at his disposal?

    I have other hopes for what the iPhone may become which would also need mounting solutions.

  16. Steve Weiss on July 6th, 2009 6:12 pm
  17. Steve Weiss on July 6th, 2009 6:16 pm

    I have a mad scientist concept that I’ve yet to try, a Rapid fire using the iPhone and the Z-finder on the iPhone. This would be virtually the same setup for your 5DMK2 and your iPhone, you just need a iPhone cradle. This might work a little better with the Tacticle Shooter.

    that’s really nice product i love idea..

  21. endeavour_uk on July 8th, 2009 7:24 am

    If you could rationalise a few of the components between the iPhone kit and the tactical then you would have a range of set-up options for the 5D2 and 3GS.

    Apologies in advance for straying dangerously far from the topic here. I would prefer the 323 QR mount to the 394 because I have a 560B video monopod and they share the same plate. Not sure the 394’s spirit levels are going to be useful in a handheld application. I had been wondering if you could mount the whole Rapid Fire on it’s own plate to mount the whole thing on the monopod. The 560B lacks the handle of the 561B you list and mounting the rapid fire would give both stabiliy and leverage (and still under 1.5k/3.5lb without the camera)

    I keep having this worrying reoccuring vision if I manage to pick up some of your gear while I am over in the States.

    The scene is I am standing in the security line at Newark as my bag slides through the X-Ray machine. A knowing glance is passed between the operator and the security guard. The guard unclips his holster and heads in my direction.

    “Sir, could you come over here and show me the contents of your bag please”
    “Good afternoon officer, is there something wrong?” I reply in the most respectable tone I can muster.
    “Please take out the items from the bag and place them on the table”

    I remove the components that make up my new most-prized possession and lay them on the table.

    “Could you explain the purpose of these items Sir” says the guard who has moved slightly behind me.
    “Of course officer, this is my new Rapid-Fire kit”

    I notice that a few more security officers seem to have gathered

    “And what purpose does this device server Sir”
    “I am going to use it to stabilise my iPhone”
    “Yeah right. What I see is a stock, lengths of hollowed aluminium tubing and a sight. I have a guy with a posh limey accent. I reckon we just caught us “The Jackal”. I got a nice little orange jump suit and some stainless steel jewellery for you to try on till the FBI arrive”

  28. Fabrice on July 24th, 2009 12:02 pm

    I like and have used Zacuto products for some time. But this ought to be the stupidest idea I have seen.
    I think making an iphone stabilizer would have made more sense.

  29. Joe Becker on July 25th, 2009 7:29 am

    This obviously isn’t for Hollywood feature films but, for students wanting to learn, or kids wanting to have fun. Of course, it will make more sense when the iPhone comes with interchangeable lenses. Ha!
    Those people who will only shoot with a Red or a Sony F900 won’t have much interest. Unless they’re looking for a cheap crash cam that fits into tight places and comes with an unlimited texting plan.
    Seriously, I see the benefit of using your iPhone to shoot a movie but, I think this stabilizer is a bit overkill. You can stabilize the thing without spending any money if you use your imagination. If you have the money, go for it. I think making fun of it is just childish. I won’t buy the stabilizer but, I may end up using an iPhone in some creative ways on my next movie.

    I’m with you. Not only am I going to wait for the steadycam adaptor but will wait a little longer for the CobraCrane adaptor too. ( Where does it end???)

  32. tverhaar on August 5th, 2009 7:43 pm

    The capability I’d like to see added to this product is some sort of a mirror system that would allow you to frame and see yourself on the video screen as you speak to the camera. Essentially, a sort of DIY news camera set-up.

  33. Patrick Cardamone on August 10th, 2009 11:21 am

    I think FLIP HD would make an excellent application for this product. I look forward to hearing that it works or will work with modifications, or a product is designed specifically for the Flip. There are a LOT of Flip cameras out there.

  34. Steve Weiss on August 10th, 2009 5:50 pm

    We have a special new product coming out for the Flip and any camera with a 1/4 20 screw hole in the bottom. It has a quick release and is extremely light weight. Keep checking the website it should show up in the next couple of weeks. It’s called a “Zgrip point and shoot” and I can’t wait for it because my point and shoot does HD video. I designed it for me and my wife to shoot great HD 720p with our $200 Canon Powershot 780 cameras that shoot amazing goreous video & photos.

  37. Andrew Howe on September 16th, 2009 5:41 am

    I took my Jr. out for its first test run on a trip to Dublin for the F-Stop workshop.  I found it made a big difference to the stability (cursed as I am with shakey hands).  The advantage of this should not be underestimated for stills as well as video.  It tends to discourage you from shooting portrait which you will appreciate later when you try to edit it later.

    You do get a few odd looks but I also got a few people asking me where they could get one, including a guy on holiday from LA – is there a commission?  ;)

    If there is a downside it is that it is an awkward shape.  It will only fit in the biggest pocket of the big coat I took to stuff lenses into if Ryanair compained about the weight of my hand-luggage.  I worry this will mean that it won’t be with me when I need it. as iPhone is most likely to be used on those occasions when I don’t have my other cameras with me.  If I had a request for Jr. v2 it would be some form of folding mechanism.

    One unintended use came up.  I picked up my hire car and discovered that the window mount and car charger I had bought especially to turn my iPhone into a SatNav had not made the trip with me.  The car had a flat, smooth plastic dashboard with nowhere safe to even leave the phone nevermind see the directions.  I found I could hold the Jr. and the steering wheel together in one hand quite comfortably and …. Z-Nav Jr. was born.  Not entirely sure of the legality of this arrangement in Ireland, but it seemed a darn side safer than trying to retrieve your iPhone from the footwell every 2 mins.

    I’m sure this question is on everyone’s mind, but does the zGrip clamp work on the new iPhone 4? Looks like it would. Will Zacuto need a different clamp?

  41. Mandy on June 29th, 2010 9:03 am

    Hi Allan,

    This current grip will not work on the Iphone 4. We are hoping to come out with something that will work on the Iphone 4 in the near future.

  42. Rachel Kenton on July 7th, 2010 1:47 pm

    Hello all,

    Good news!!!!!  We managed to get our hands on the new iPhone 4 and ran some tests.  With a few slight modifications our Zgrip iPhone Jr will work with the iPhone 4!!  Hooray :)   Just make sure you specify that you have an iPhone 4 when you order.  You can order our Zgrip iPhone Jr here:

    As always, feel free to call (312 863 3456) or email us at if you have any questions or concerns.
